3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't really know of any of the Greek life here.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Personally, I do not about Greek life and do not if there is "Greek students".

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: You don't need to join a greek org. But if you decide to you will love it. It opens up many opportunities for you to pursue. Gives you leadership and management experience. The IFC fraternities are on average about 60 brothers making the brotherhood very close and giving every member unlimited opportunitues. Also, quite a few have large alumni chapters as well. Last parties are fun and you meet so many people each weekend.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I can not really say, because I am not necesarily in a Greeek organizaton, but they are very competitvie and intimidating.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: There really isn't a difference if someone is a Greek student or not. Temple has many commuters, so Greek life is not a huge deal.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

There is a large amount of Greek associations on campus. They vary from cultural to professional to academic fraternities and sororities. With such a large population, they do not dominate the campus. You can see the Greeks shine during annual events such as Homecoming and Spring Fling, where these clubs show off their colors and letters. Greeks are also known for their parties, offering those who can’t get into bars and clubs another option for something to do at night. The campus seems to be divided on its feelings toward the Greeks. While some people find Greek life to be an incredible experience, others feel as though members are secretive and cliquish.

It's best for students interested in joining the Greeks to get to know a member of a fraternity or sorority. They aren’t as cliquish or intimidating as some people may think. These organizations also have events such as dating-game shows and bachelor auctions. Many students prefer professional fraternities because they help make connections with alumni and non-alumni in professional fields. They are also a reliable source for resume help and internships. Fraternities are supposed to provide community service, though most students at Temple don’t recognize them doing much.
